Donald Trump Claims He's Now 'Immune' From Coronavirus
Donald Trump claims he is now 'immune' to the coronavirus after his doctors gave him the all clear.
The US President's physicians said he meets the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria for being allowed to come out of isolation.
On Twitter, Trump wrote: "A total and complete sign off from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can't get it (immune), and can't give it. Very nice to know!!!"
However, the social media site flagged the post for violating rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to the pandemic.

At the moment, there's no clear evidence that a coronavirus survivor has antibodies present to prevent them from contracting the virus a second or third time.
While Trump's doctors have said he is no longer 'considered a transmission risk', they haven't made it clear that he has tested negative for Covid-19.
According to ABC News, some medical experts have been skeptical about the President being cleared of being infectious after only 10 days since his test for the coronavirus came back positive.
Speaking to Fox News on Sunday, Trump said: "I passed the highest test, the highest standards, and I'm in great shape."

Trump will be hitting the key battleground state of Florida this week and will hold campaign rallies in Pennsylvania and Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday as his showdown with Joe Biden gets more intense.
The President said last week that he wanted to make the drug treatment he received in hospital to be made free for all Americans.
But the pharmaceutical company that makes the drug, Regeneron, has sounded a more cautious note.
The chief executive of the company, Leonard Schleifer, told CBS: "The president is a case of one. It is evidence of what's happening, but it's kind of the weakest evidence you can get."
He's promising to do more clinical trials to see whether the treatment will be effective.
